Song Fight Review: Susan + I'm Eating A Wasp (part 1)

The last fight that I reviewed over at Song Fight was titled "Look At The Sky", and I predicted that Something Happy would win. Something Happy ended up taking a strong 2nd place, and the person I picked 2nd (Ajl Anderson) actually got the win. I didn't review the last fight called "I'm Eating A Wasp (part 1)", and that was mostly because the title was stupid. I'll mention my favorite song from that fight after I review the current fight titled "Susan". I suggest you go pick your favorite songs for the current round. My picks are listed below:

Voted For:
(Right Click "Save As" on the artist's name for a MP3 of their entry.)

Ross Durand - Emotion filled vocals, with a touching story. Pretty typical of Ross, which is a good thing considering he's typically great.

(Head over to Song Fight to listen to these songs.)

deetak - Couple of lines where I would change a word, but I enjoyed the song. Vocally it was rough at times, mostly when you went higher. Overall, well done.

noah mclaughlin - The updated version of this that is linked to in the forums is better than what was entered into the fight. I enjoyed the performance a lot, and if the new mix had been entered in time I might have voted for this.

Berkeley Social Scene - I really liked this, the only problem I had was the vocals. They weren't terrible, but better vocals could have this song on my MP3 player. I could hear all of them, but I really had to concentrate to do so. Besides that the singing just didn't impress me all that much.

I'm Eating A Wasp (part 1)
This fight was lame. The stupid title didn't help matters. The only song I liked was from The Real Sign. Johnny Cashpoint did make me laugh with his entry, but it's not something that held any replay value for me. Chekhov's Raygun deserves a "Nice Try" as well, but it's just a stupid topic for a song...which made most things tough to listen to. heine ended up taking the victory for this fight. I imagine winning this fight was like winning a game of roshambo. You may have won, but in the end nobody wins who plays roshambo.
